Essence of NY & C

What is it about this glittery and electrifying city? Why is one so eager to be at this one particular city? This past weekend I was roaming at the streets of Manhattan. Every time I visit this place, I feel content. This city can allure anyone and everyone. It’s attracting nature, those sky-scrapers, sloppy roads, unkempt subways, and flamboyant attitude is a completely different experience. In the midst of this city, it feels strangely colorful. One can connect with this place within seconds.

The glamorous life of this city is extremely mesmerizing. It’s a city of dreams. A city of risk takers. It can hit you hard or it can hold you firmly in its hands. A taxi driver can become millionaire in no time and vice versa. One needs to try their luck at this place. The most bewildering part is that a taxi driver and a stock market analyst ride on the same subway. Quite astounding… Times Square is one of the most hip and happening place on our Globe. 24/7 it gleams and sparkles with lights, glitzy commercials, humungous banners promoting the hottest technology, movies, movie stars, famous brands, top selling cars… Everything is done with panache at this city. It seems as if special advertisements are created for all the products to showcase on Times Square.

I envision NYC as the most pampered city in the entire US of A. Believe me, special arrangements are made for this particular place. Security is extra high; the New Year ball only drops at Times square; best targeted location for terrorists; the most favorable location for every visitor; excellent spot for commercialization/advertisements; world’s best transportation rests beneath the sky-scrapers; and superlative place to discover all sorts of trashy people. Yeah, I detected ‘those types of people’ as well.

The article cannot be complete without the mention of 9/11 attacks on the most fondled city in USA. Well, justice has been served. OBL is dead! The souls of all the victims may rest in peace and a big salute to all the fire fighters who selflessly rescued hundreds of people buried in the piles of debris. However, with security increasing post death of OBL, one question is hovering on everyone’s mind… Is a dead Osama better than Osama alive?


  1. Liked the idea of writing on NYC.. its better if he is dead.. and the way its conducted as if a Rambo class operation :)

  2. Osama dead is surely better but we cannot bypass the enraged members of his so-called-organization. They are equally capable of doing something bigger than 9/11... :( Simply sad!
